About: 

Vineyard

  • 40 hectares (5 hectares of white grapes)
  • Gravely-sand and gravely-clay soils
  • Hand-sorted grapes

Vinification

  • Temperature-controlled stainless-steel vats
  • Malolactic fermentation partially in barrels
  • Aging in oak barrels (30% new) on fine lees

Vintage 2016

  • Extraordinary weather conditions required meticulous vineyard management
  • Significant water shortage halted growth, focusing vine energy on tannins and anthocyanins
  • Peak heatwave conditions followed by cool nights preserved white grape aromas
  • Warm, bright weather in second half of September benefited red grapes
  • Complex wines with concentrated Cabernet Sauvignon structure and ripe, fleshy Merlot fruit

Tasting Notes

Intense, deep ruby color.  This wine has a complex bouquet of fresh black berry fruits and smoky notes.  It is taut on the palate with lovely, silky tannins coated in fresh, dark Merlot fruit.  Tannic finesse and blackcurrant aromas from Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot.  This is a long, full-flavored wine with lingering, spicy finish.

Will age very well.
